Domaine de recherches

Je m’intéresse à cognition du primate non humain en adoptant une perspective de psychologie comparée. L’espèce étudiée est le babouin, mais des collaborations m’amènent à étudier d’autres espèces ainsi que des sujets humains. Pour une présentation des procédures comportementales utilisées, voir l’onglet méthodes

My work aims to understand perception (perceptual grouping), attention, memory, categorization and concept formation processes in nonhuman primates. My main species of interest is the baboon, though cross-species studies are also conducted in a comparative perspective.

Plateforme "Comportement et Cognition du Primate: Principes de l’expérimentation.

L’équipe dispose d’une troupe de 30 babouins installés en groupe social dans un enclos de 700 m2. Cette infrastructure a pour originalité majeure de permettre un libre accès à une série de 10 stations de conditionnement opérant, adjacentes à l’enclos, toutes équipées d’écrans tactiles et de systèmes de récompenses. Ces stations sont utilisées pour la présentation des expériences sur la perception et la cognition du primate. Dans la pratique, les babouins peuvent à tout moment quitter leur groupe social pour utiliser ces boxes, et contribuer ainsi à la recherche selon un principe de participation volontaire. Cette infrastructure est sans équivalent en Europe, dans son principe et dans son échelle. Elle permet le recueil d’informations riches et variées sur les composantes sociales et non sociales du comportement, tout en adhérant aux contraintes éthiques les plus sévères

Our research uses a troup of 30 baboons maintained in a large (700m2) compound. The main originality our research facility is that the members of the group have a free access to a series of operant conditioning test systems, equiped with touch screens, adjacent to the compound. The baboons isolate themseves from the group to participate to the research program on a voluntary basis. This facility is unique in its concept and scale. It allows research programs on both the social and nonsocial aspects of cognition, while meeting the most stringent ethical standards in animal research
